Obviously if you don't want to spend money, it will take awhile for you to trade for the e-money in order to get an item you want, but really we have no idea what the economy will be like in the game.
.

Except you clearly have no idea what your talking about. When a player can substitute having to earn gear for the option to purchase whatever gear they want with actual cash, that's Pay2Win.

What did you think it meant?

This video is such a great metaphor towards "always on" DRM. Sure you can play this game but you can't go offline with it.

What about people who do not have stable internet connections? What about people who are on the go? What about the soldiers stationed in the Middle East?

Great job Blizzard, along with Ubisoft you have shunned a great deal of potential customers and have achieved nothing.

Blizzard believes a high percentage of users have access to a permanent internet connection anyway, and even though piracy was a concern it was not "a deciding factor" in making the decision.

Instead Blizzard claims connectivity will be necessary due to the wealth of Battle.net features that complement the game, to name a few: persistent character saving server-side and the possibility of opting in/out of co-op play, persistent friends list, party system and matchmaking, the game's achievement system, and an auction house system that will allow real world currency to purchase items. -techspot

I for one want ss character saves

Blizzard could make 1 use only discs that expire after that gaming session fill the cases full of dog poop sell them for $90 each and people would still buy them if they have the name Diablo on them, so it doesn't really matter. All it proves is how much power you give these companies when you buy stuff from them, we need a gamers union.

The game is supposed to be an MMORPG...That means you have to be on-line to play.

What's the malfunction in understanding that basic concept?

It's kinda like WoW...If you're not on-line you can't play it...Go figure?!?!?!

I'm sure you have a source for that.

It will be disappointing having to find interwebz at crappy hotels just to play it, but this system really isn't that bad. I guess I will just have to tether my phone every time now.
